Exurban Kevin Creighton
Kevin Creighton (aka ExurbanKevin) is the self-described physical embodiment of NAFTA: He’s a Canadian living in the U.S. who speaks fluent Spanish. He’s also, (in ascending order of importance), a former professional photographer, recovering nerd, online marketing guru, father to two adorable boys, husband to a wonderful woman and a servant of the King. Kevin blogs about politics at Exurban League and his self-defense and gunblog is Misfires And Light Strikes. When he's not blogging (which isn't all that often...), he's probably playing with his sons or cooking a meal for his family or listening to 80's alternative music or off at a shooting range somewheres.
Barack Obama tried to convince the American people yesterday in his scripted, Truman Show like press conference that concerned, law abiding, gun-toting Americans need not worry about him confiscating our guns. In essence, he tried to persuade us to believe that our right to buy or sell guns and ammo will not be infringed upon. Please…I’ll believe that when his administration sells weapons to Mexican drug cartels! Oh, wait…
Many continue to argue that Obama cannot and will not disarm Americans because it’s outside the confines of the Constitution. As if he hasn’t colored outside Constitutional lines thus far right? Next argument please… The next argument is if he does executively try to pry our gun(s) from our American grip that we can impeach him. Really? Who is going to impeach him? Congress? Is John Boehner going to lead the way on that? In fact, where are all those ‘’I swear to uphold the oath of office and protect the Constitution” Representatives now? Surely the Supreme Court won’t take any action against Obama because Obama will more than likely liberally stack the court following the soon to be retirees. He already can count on the John Boehner mini-me John Roberts who caved on ObamaCare to support him. So America what to do, what to do…
First of all, let’s get this intellectually mapped out if possible. What happened in Connecticut was the darkest form of evil. There is no other explanation for it. Any harm unleashed on any child is hell driven. What’s worse is to take that horrific act and use it for one’s own personal agenda. Obama is using the most heartbreaking tragedy that took the lives of twenty precious innocent children in order to implement his fundamental transformation new order for America. However, the deceit and revelation of his real agenda is not exemplified by what Obama is doing but rather by what he is NOT doing. The President wants to executively act so more children are safe and not violently killed. So now President Obama is in the business of wanting to save children? Wow! What an about face! Has the most ruthless, pro-abortion American President experienced an epiphany that makes him want to protect children? No.
Planned Parenthood released their infanticide numbers for 2011. They committed 333,964 murders in 2011. On average, they carried out one homicide every ninety-four seconds. By the time you more than likely finish reading this piece; three abortions will have taken place. Think about those numbers. Who can literally sit down and mathematically tally the deaths of hundreds of thousands of babies without a flinch as if we’re discussing baseball stats?
I know many will claim I am minimizing the disgusting, barbaric attack on those precious babies in Connecticut. Actually it’s the exact opposite. I value every single life of every single child inside and outside the womb. If we are going to protect children, that includes every single child who has a beating heart.
So, if Barack Obama has a changed heart and truly wants to protect children as he claims, I expect him to cut the 360 million dollars from the annual budget given to Planned Parenthood that is used every year to murder children. I expect him to appoint Supreme Court judges that will support overturning Roe v Wade. I expect him to publicly denounce his ‘’no’’ vote he cast as a Senator in Chicago on a bill that would have required a doctor to save the life a baby who survived an abortion. If he wants to protect children, according to him he certainly has the executive authority to do so!
The biggest assault weapon in America today requires no permit. It requires no background check and it kills more children every second than any gun. If we truly want to protect America’s children I expect the President to ban the most deadly assault weapons used on children today: the cannula, forceps, probe, curette, suction tube, syringe and saline. One may argue not all doctors use these instruments to kill children. Well, not all Americans use guns to kill children either.
We shouldn’t have to accept the fact that we now live in a society where it’s legal for a mother to murder her child but will now become illegal for her to bear the needs necessary to protect her child. If that’s not good being called evil and evil good I don’t know what is. There is a time and season for everything. I truly believe we are the chosen generation for a reason. It is not by accident that we are the generation here at this time to fight the current of this dangerous tide. Ladies, stay strapped and protect your children. The last people who have your back is the government.
